      Hi,
      The villain's stats: VPIP 57, PFR 18 over 70 hands. He's been raising every pot just before this hand. Do you think I should've defended here?

      Thanks

      PS This was played on FTP, I sometimes go to play on better sites when I'm fed up with Titan :)

      Is there a rule against those CO steals? I see that a lot, but I haven't seen anything where this should be explained. I want to make my game better and I think I do loose lots of hands by villian stealing from me.

      When CO or BU openraises and you sit in the blinds you can push all-in preflop(resteal) with AJ+/88+. That's more or less all the science behind it :)

      Without statistics, sticking to this is the nutz :)
